Grace Mhango, former Persoanal Assistant to Gwanda Chakuamba, has claimed that he was officially a second wife to the fallen veteran politician despite the 46 years age difference they had.
Chakuamba died at 82 while Mango is 36.
She disclosed about the relationship with Chakuamba when she called a news conference at her Manja residence in Blantyre a day after her husband’s burial.
Mhango complained that relations of Chakuamba’s first wife treated her badly and wanted her arrested.
But she claimed Chakuamba loved her most since the time he knew her “because of late Chakufwa Chihana who was keeping me.”
Mango said Chakuamba took her to Blantyre from Mzuzu in 2001 and made it open that she was his second wife.
“Our relationship continued until I got pregnant for him,” Mango told the reporters.
“But unfortunately, I miscarried at three months. In the process, he gave me a job as his personal assistant,” she said.
Mhango said she looked after Chakuamba throughout his illness.
Chakuamba’s wife. Raima Fatch, confirmed knowning Mhango but said she could not comment on her remarks.
